3. Thank you so much for the photos.
Greatness on so many levels as they pay tribute to an ICON. He left his gifts for us and for that I'm truly grateful.

BRAVO Mr. Vandross, bravo!

6. Luther's death was very sad

I believe he was his mother's last living child. All his siblings had died, too. As much as we, the fans, we'll miss him, it's nothing compared to her loss.
